    UPS, UPS Freight Members Authorize Strikes, If Necessary

    UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters have approved giving their respective negotiating committees the right to call a strike, if necessary.

    The UPS members authorized a strike, if necessary, by a 93 percent margin. At UPS Freight, the margin was 91 percent.

    The vote was conducted by electronic secret ballot and the tally was released tonight.

    “This vote by our UPS and UPS Freight members gives the negotiating committees bargaining leverage this week and during subsequent negotiations for the national contract and the supplements,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “It is very helpful to have the members’ backing as we work toward negotiating strong contracts at UPS and UPS Freight.”

    AMERICA MAY SOON FACE ITS BIGGEST LABOR STRIKE IN DECADES

    The Teamsters and United Parcel Service could be heading toward the nation's largest strike in decades.


    On Tuesday, the union announced members voted more than 90% in favor of going on strike, if necessary. But despite the overwhelming vote, there are deep divisions within the union on the best negotiating strategy.

    UPS employs 260,000 Teamsters, and has added 40,000 union members since its current contract was reached five years ago. UPS transports an estimated 6% of the nation's GDP, which means a labor dispute could disrupt the US economy.

    At issue is how the shipping giant will expand to offer deliveries seven days a week.

    UPS began offering regular Saturday delivery service just a year ago. It hasn't officially announced plans for Sunday service, but the union says the company has made several proposals to expand weekend deliveries.

    One proposal on the negotiating table is to create a two-tier wage system that would take part-time workers who earn $15 an hour and make them full-time at the same wage. Existing full-time drivers now earn an average of $36 an hour, or roughly $75,000 a year.

    The Teamsters are divided on this proposal, which makes it harder to reach a deal and avoid a strike.

    UPS and the Teamsters union have reached a tentative agreement on a new five-year labor deal, which if approved could alleviate the risk of a strike.

    The settlement in principle of the national master UPS agreement is subject to approval by UPS local unions, and yet to be resolved are supplemental agreements, according to the Teamsters. The final deal and supplemental agreements will be put to a vote by members.

    UPS and Teamsters union agree to terms on new 5-year labor contract

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- UPS and the*International Brotherhood of Teamsters have reach tentative agreement on a new five-year labor contract.

    The agreement increases the part-time starting pay rate for each of the five years, from $13.00 on Aug. 1, 2018, to $15.50 on Aug. 2, 2022.*Currently, package handlers start at $10.35 per hour, while drivers make at least $19 and top out at about $36.

    All part-time employees hired after Aug. 1 will earn that new start rate.*

    The pay for full-time combination drivers will starts at $20.50 and reach as high as $34.79 on Aug. 1, 2022.

    The agreement, which is subject to approval by union members in a vote next month, affects about 12,000 employees in Louisville, most of which are package handlers and drivers. If approved, it would be in effect until July 31, 2023.

    UPS, Teamsters agree to cut use of rail, rely more on sleeper team drivers

    The tentative five-year contract agreed to late last night by UPS Inc. and leaders of the Teamsters union's small-package division calls for a significant reduction in intermodal use in favor of expanding the number of two-person "sleeper team" drivers operating over the road.

    Under the tentative agreement, UPS will switch "many loads" currently moved by railroads to what the union, in a communiqué last night, referred to as a significant number of "newly created" sleeper teams. UPS' sleeper teams will be paid at levels that far surpass what any teams receive elsewhere in trucking, the union said. The proposal would create 2,000 full-time Teamsters jobs, according to the union. Atlanta-based UPS has operated with over-the-road sleep teams for a number of years.

    Depending on the amount of converted volume, the provision could be a blow to the nation's railroads. UPS has long been one of the largest, if not the largest, individual users of intermodal services. The company would not comment on how much traffic moves via intermodal.

    Two-person sleeper teams split a fairly generous cents-per-mile rate between them, and they are considered some of the highest-paid drivers on the road today. Sleepers can make a combined wage of well into the six figures, depending on the carrier. Sleepers are in higher demand now after the implementation of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, which requires strict adherence to driver hours-of-service regulations. Unlike a solo driver, who must pull off the road after 11 hours of continuous driving (with a 30-minute break after 8 hours), in a team one of the drivers can take the wheel after the other exhausts his or her available hours. The supply of available two-person teams is very tight, however.

    UPS/UPSF CONTRACT TALKS SET FOR JULY 9-12

    New bargaining dates have been set for the UPS and UPS Freight contracts. This week’s national contract negotiations will wrap up on June 21. The next contract talks have been set for July 9-12 in Minneapolis.

    Contract negotiations on UPS supplements and riders will also be held July 9-12.

    The International Union has directed the Chairs of all Supplement and Riders who have not come to a tentative agreement to bring their Negotiating Committees to Minneapolis.

    The International Union has maintained an information brownout and done zero to unite and mobilize the members to win good contracts. But Teamster members have stepped up to fill the vacuum.

    New UPS Combination Driver Jobs Protect Weekends for Package-Car Drivers, Address Issue of Forced Overtime, Create Full-Time Jobs
    Since the settlement in principle was reached last week with UPS for the National UPS agreement, plans have been made for negotiations on the supplemental agreements. As stated in the previous contract update (June 21), the supplemental agreements must be resolved and approved by UPS local unions first. This week’s update will focus on the new classification of Full-Time Combination Driver and further materials will be issued about other highlights of the settlement.

    A new classification, Full-Time Combination Driver, will protect weekends for package-car drivers, will address the issues of excessive, forced overtime and will create thousands of new full-time job opportunities for part-time employees.

    The new classification is referred to as “22.4 Combination Drivers” (Article 22, Section 4 new subsection B), similar to 22.3 combination jobs that already exist.

    “Our members know that they work in a changing industry, driven by e-commerce and the ‘Amazon effect,’ where consumers want fast delivery and weekend delivery,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “This new classification reflects this changing world while protecting our package-car drivers’ weekends, creating more full-time jobs and addressing excessive overtime.”

    This last Tuesday we went to the local ShopRite supermarket and while we were walking in the local UPS driver was there. I asked him what he thought about the tentative agreement and he said it sounded good. The guy IMO was close to retirement. I explained to him about the two tier system and to accept it was selling out future workers. I don't know if I was able to change his mind or not but what I see is there are many that just don't care.. That it seemed how this guy looked at it.

    Teamsters Release UPS National Agreement in Principal, Highlights
    The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee has released the National Agreement in Principal and highlights of the agreement. The highlights are available in this update (see below) and the agreement is available here.

    “The proposed contract provides all our UPS members—full-time and part-time workers—with tremendous gains in wages, benefits and working conditions for years to come,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters Negotiating Committee. "We are releasing the proposed contract and highlights now so that our members have the latest and most accurate information.”

    At press time, union negotiators are meeting to finalize the supplemental agreements. We have ageed to a contract extension that allows the leaders of local unions that represent UPS members to review the proposed national contract and supplements. Upon the leaders’ approval, members will then have the opportunity to vote electronically to ratify the National Agreement and their supplements.

    “We will continue to keep our members informed as the process moves forward,” Taylor said. “We appreciate our members continued input and support. We look forward to wrapping up these long, challenging negotiations so that our members will win the security they need and deserve for themselves and for their families.”
